This way they’re a good second best to the real thing!

Sure, you can use regular store-bought felt, but one of my favorite crafting materials, felted wool sweaters, make much more pretty and substantial snowflakes!

How to make no sew felt snowflake ornaments:

Hang them on the Christmas tree or string them as a garland or from the ceiling for a magical decorative effect! #diysnowflake #feltsnowflake #snowflakechristmasornament 1. Cut a 6 x 12 cm rectangle of felt or material from the felted sweater. Then cut this piece into six 1 x 12 cm strips. You’ll find that you can cut a lot of rectangles this size from one sweater. Using a rotary cutter*, cutting mat* and quilting ruler* in this step will make it much easier and faster, creating perfectly straight strips that will fold and fit together better.

2. Fold a strip in half. Put a bit of hot glue inside the fold and press tight.

Repeat step 3 with the other five strips.

4. Glue two strips together on the outside of the folds (shown by the arrow).

Repeat step 4 with the other two pairs of folded strips.

6. Glue the three pairs of strips together in the center to make a sort of wheel shape.
